So old our children are

life expectancy in Switzerland is rising. In the year 2017-born boys should, on average, are 81.4 years old, girl of 85.4. Every fourth girl Born in 2017 and may even expect to be able to some day, a hundred birthday candles to blow out.

But the men are catching up their backlog in the life expectancy slowly. Those Born in 1997 and a life expectancy of 76.3 years, had the time of their birth, 5.8 years less than in the same-year-born women.

Ten years later-born boy could expect an average 79.4 years of age, 4.8 years less than women with the same Vintage. And in the case of the 2017-Born, the average life will vary expectancy between the sexes by only four years.

New model, higher age

Between 1876 and 1917 increased the life expectancy by a good 20 years, in men from 43 to 63 and for women from 47 to 70 years. This increase is based largely on a decrease in the infant mortality rate in all age classes decline in deaths due to infectious diseases, writes the Federal office for statistics (BSF) in a message from Thursday.

The increase in the life expectancy between the generations in 1917, and in 1967 was diseases on the decline in mortality due to cardiovascular, especially in old age, due. "Should the development of the mortality, in this way, men and women according to birth year 2017 model, on average, 91 or 94 years old."

The Figures are based on a specially for the Switzerland-made model, the calculated new cohort mortality tables for the generations born between 1876 and 2030, respectively. They were published on Thursday by the Federal office for statistics (BFS).

100. Birthday no longer a rarity

of The 100. Birthday loses from Generation to Generation in exclusivity. The 1917-Born only 0.4 per cent of men and 1.7 percent of women of this age reached. In the case of the Generation of 1967, the proportion of estimated 4 will be relatively 11 percent. And of the babies Born in 2017 and 15 percent of boys and 26 percent of girls are expected to be in the year 2117 a very, very special birthday to celebrate.

The BFS notes that the average life span is a cohort measure, which is calculated for a whole cohort. It represents the average age, in which all members of a single birth cohort to die. It is not so with the average life expectancy is the same, which refers to a single calendar year. (aru/sda)
